Jorginho's representative denies any contact by Manchester United

The midfielder has attracted attention from Premier League clubs

Napoli midfielder Jorginho has been in great form this season, scoring 3 goals and assisting four in 35 appearances for the club in all competitions. He has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the league and his form has attracted attention from Premier League.

The midfielder’s representative Joao Santos has confirmed that four or five Premier League clubs are interested in him. Manchester City are one of the clubs who are keen to sign him according to reports.

Manchester United are also believed to be one of the clubs keeping tabs on the Italy International as they are looking to replace Michael Carrick, who will be retiring at the end of the season.

But the player’s representative insists that no approach has been made by the Red Devils for the 26 year old.

Santos told Radio Crc: “Jorginho has done very well with Napoli, he plays for the Italian national team, he is unique in his characteristics and for those reasons he’s probably being followed by many teams.

“At the moment though there are a lot of rumours flying about. The Napoli coach and players are being approached by first one team then another, but there’s nothing official.

“The last thing I read is that Manchester United made a proposal through [Jose] Mourinho’s representative [Jorge Mendes], but no-one called me.”

He added: “Everyone asks for information, but nobody has made any official offers so I can’t say which track is hotter.

“I’ve already been to all the English clubs because that’s my job, I get information. If he were to leave Napoli I can say that Jorginho wouldn’t play for any other team in Serie A, even if he didn’t have any release clause.”
